I’m tired of talking about feminism to men.
I’m tired of explaining to men that the feminist movement will, in fact, benefit them as well as women. I’m tired of trying to hawk gender equality like I’m some kind of car salesman showing off a shiny new sedan, explaining all of its bells and whistles. I’m tired of smiling through a thousand thoughtless microaggressions, tired of providing countless pieces of evidence, tired of being questioned on every. Single. Damn. Thing.I’m tired of proving that microaggressions exist, tired of proving that I’m unfairly questioned and asked for proof. For a movement that’s centered around the advancement and empowerment of women, why do I feel like I’m supposed to spend so damn much of my time carefully considering how what I say and do will be taken by men?
I’m tired of men who insert themselves into feminist spaces with claims of hurt feelings. I’m tired of men who somehow manage to make every issue about them. I’m tired of men like the one who recently stopped by a friend’s Facebook thread in order to call feminism “c*nty”, then lecture the women involved for being too “hostile” in their responses to him. I’m tired of men telling me that my understanding of feminism and rape culture are wrong, as if these aren’t things that I have studied intensely. I’m tired of men who claim to be feminist allies, then abuse that position to their own advantage. I’m so fucking exhausted by the fact that I know that I will have to, at some point in this piece, mention that I understand that not all men are like that. I will have to note that some men are good allies. And all of those things are true! And all of you good allies get cookies! But honestly,I’m tired of handing out cookies to people just because they’re decent fucking human beings.

Supernatural’s conception of its fanbase:
So I went to see The Boxtrolls today having been very excited about all of the publicity, the general theme of the film, and all of the posters I saw of what appeared to be same gender families.
I left the cinema in tears because of it. It’s very transmisogynist. I do not advise anyone, especially trans women, to see this film. I’ll explain why below.
THE REGURGITATION OF AN INCREDIBLY COMMON TRANSMISOGYNIST TROPE IS NOT ACTUALLY PRESENTING ANYTHING CRITICALLY.
If you’re a trans woman I’m so fucking sorry for what this world’s done to you. If you’re not, shut the fuck up.
We can criticise this media without desperately trying to assign good motives to the transmisogynists who made it.
Wow way to completely throw out any discussion and be a complete asshat? I never once attacked you or any trans people. And if I were trans and had the same opinion, you would have no right to tell me you’re sorry for me. That’s really fucking condescending, seriously. But I’m not trans, nor did I claim to be.
Why can’t it be possible that the filmmakers were using this INCREDIBLY COMMON TRANSMISOGYNIST TROPE to make people think about what the fuck the trope is saying and how harmful it is? Artists generally DO use fucking rehashed harmful tropes to point out what’s wrong with them THAT’S WHAT I WAS SAYING. And regardless if they meant to use it that way or not YOU CAN STILL READ IT THE SAME WAY. Geez, calm the fuck down.
